What is your AMH level?

What is your AMH level?

 

AMH stands for Anti-Mullerian Hormone. This hormone level is an indicator of ovarian reserve. It can be tested via bloodwork to determine the number of follicles inside the ovaries as well as a woman’s egg count.

 

For the most part, AMH levels decrease as you age meaning that fertility decreases at a much faster rate when women reach their 30’s and 40’s.  Hence a high AMH level indicates a higher number of eggs remaining in the ovaries. A very high AMH can mean that a woman may possibly have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). A low AMH indicates a low number of follicles left leading to infertility.  

 

A typical AMH level for a fertile woman is 1.0–4.0 ng/ml; under 1.0 ng/ml is considered low and indicative of a diminished ovarian reserve. Here is a chart explaining the levels:

 

AMH Level (ng/ml) Interpretation General Age Prediction
>3.0 High (possibly PCOS) < 30 years old
1.0-3.0 Normal 30-38 years old
0.4-0.9 Low >38 years old
<0.4 Very Low >40  years old

 

Now that you have this information, why not go get tested?  Find a fertility clinic in your area and call to see how much an assessment is. Life is full of surprises and so is your fertility.
